Waterman 52 – Wet Noodle  (On Ebay)

Here is a nice BCHR Waterman 52. It’s got some typical browning and the chasing is worn though visible. At some point, the hard rubber was polished. The nickel trim is in good condition, but does have some plate loss on the clip. Much less on the lever. The nib is great, but it had a small crack that I had repaired coming from the breather hole. Later I discovered another very tiny crack developed on the other side of the hole.  Nevertheless, this is a great Wet Noodle that goes from XF (0.3mm) to BBB (2.0mm). It’s also a good normal, everyday writer. The nib has a nice smooth flex, and I have never railroaded this feed.

SIZE:  5 1/4″ Capped

NIB: Waterman #2, XF to BBB (0.3mm-2.0mm),  Wet Noodle  (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

FILLING: Lever

CONDITION: Good

Restration Work:

  • Pen (barrel, section, nib, feed, & cap) thoroughly cleaned & flushed
  • Nib and trim polished
  • Pen was mostly restored when I acquired it
  • Nib and feed tuned to write smoothly and with optimal flow
  • Test driven for at least a week to insure quality
